South Australian Nancy Murdock is nothing short of an inspiration.
A three time cancer survivor, Nancy has not only lived through cancer herself, but has also seen it impact the ones she loves most, losing her mum, dad, two sisters and her brother to cancer and watching her son go through treatment. Her family’s experience continues to motivate her each and every year to make a difference.
Every May, Nancy gathers her family and friends for her annual Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea at the Berri Town Hall. For Nancy, her event is not only about supporting those close to her, but also about inspiring others.
“I love being involved in Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea! I like to help raise funds in the hope that one day we’ll end cancer so that future generations won’t be affected in the same way I have.”
“I enjoy speaking to all the people who attend the event – many of who return year after year – and helping tell people about what the Cancer Council does.”
This year will mark Nancy’s 12th Biggest Morning Tea and every year, she loves to make her famous cockle biscuits – they’re a crowd favourite.
“They’re quick and easy to make and everyone seems to love them!”
